Grüner Veltliner grapes were destemmed but not crushed. Fermentation on whole berries, total maceration for almost three weeks before pressing. Pressing fraction was reblended. Aging in 300l cigar shape oak barrels for 15 months.
Bottled with little sulfure added, coarse filtration at bottling. 

It resulted in a complex white wine that - tasted blindly - has more in common with red wine. 
Grapes come from various terrassed vineyards throughout the valley (Buschenberg, Loibenberg and Hochrain), where we have to farm everything by hand without tractors.
